WASHINGTON (PRWEB) February 20, 2023
VerImmune, Inc. (“VerImmune”), a biotechnology company leading the way in developing virus-inspired particle modalities for cancer treatment, is proud to announce the issuance of its second U.S. Patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The newly issued patent, U.S. Patent No. 11,560,408 entitled "Conjugated virus-like particles and uses thereof as anti-tumor immune redirectors," provides further protection and support for VerImmune's proprietary technology platform, including the composition of matter and methods of use in treating cancer. The patent is expected to offer protection until at least 2038.
VerImmune's platform redirects the body's pre-existing T-cell memory against pathogens to attack cancer and could potentially act against multiple types of cancer due to the near-universal nature of pre-existing responses to childhood vaccines and past infections. As such, this technology has potentially broad treatment applications.
"The issuance of this second patent is a testament to VerImmune's growing global intellectual property estate, now boasting over 30 patent applications worldwide. This is a key factor in VerImmune's mission to innovate and optimize the clinical and commercial potential of its assets.” said Joshua Wang, Founder and CEO of VerImmune.
VerImmune is a biotechnology company developing a novel first-in-class cancer therapy known as Anti-tumor Immune Redirection (AIR). This strategy utilizes a proprietary virus-inspired particle (ViP) technology platform that redirects pre-existing pathogenic or childhood vaccine immune memory towards tumors. This unique mechanism of action allows differentiation within the competitive Immuno-Oncology market. Importantly, it potentially changes the treatment paradigm for many patients who have un-treatable cancers due to limited options or experience cancer treatment resistance.
